[edit] Standard Marvin Window Energy Efficient Solutions for Various Climates

Climate affects the type of window that is best suited to a home's insulating requirements. Northern climates, with their cold climates, require windows that maintain heat and slow the transfer of heat. A U-Factor rating measures this heat loss. In addition, windows installed in heating-dominated climates should provide a high solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC). The SHGC indicates the rate at which heat passes through the window. In southern cooling-dominated climates, the windows should reflect solar radiation to lower cooling costs with a lower solar heat gain coefficient.

Marvin windows' U-Factor and solar heat gain coefficient ratings meet the needs of individuals in both heating and cooling-dominated climates.

[edit] Multi-Pane Windows

To meet Energy Star requirements for high performance U-Factor windows Marvin's windows include double - or triple-pane windows. These windows impede heat transfer to provide an energy efficient window solution. Argon gas is pumped in between the panes of a double-glazed window and krypton gas is pumped in between the panes of a triple-glazed window. These gases present heightened a energy performance.

[edit] Low E Coating

Low E insulated glass coating is applied to all Marvin Windows glass panes to boost the windows' energy efficiency. Low-E film coats the glass surface and gaps between each window pane with a Low-E material which blocks a significant amount of heat transfer. Low-E coatings are transparent to visible light. Three different types of coating are available for different climates to allow for high, moderate or low solar gain.

[edit] Additional Enhancements

Marvin offers an energy panel and a storm and screen combination as an optional order to enhance the energy performance of Marvin windows.

[edit] Energy Panel

Marvin's energy panels are glazing options which consist of a removable exterior glass panel with a surround along the edges. Energy panels cover exposed glass surfaces on the window sash to provide additional energy efficiency for single glazed wood windows.

[edit] Storm and Screen Combos

The combination of a storm window and screen involves two movable glass panels and one movable screen panel. Each individual panel can be configured in several ways and can also be removed for cleaning.

[edit] Tax Credits

Replacement Marvin products may qualify for a tax credit based on the window's energy performance and the climate in which the home is located. Eligible windows are rated as Energy Star windows based on the window's U-Factor and its solar heat gain coefficient. Different windows are tax-rebate-eligible in different climates.
